Eye on Elegance: Early Quilts of Maryland and Virginia

In Eye on Elegance, the DAR Museum uses its extraordinarily rich holdings of Maryland and Virginia quilts to examine regional styles prior to 1860. Styles particularly popular in Maryland and Virginia are displayed side by side with quilts whose designs were popular throughout the Eastern Seaboard. Because we know many of the quiltmakers, we can identify their quilts as Maryland or Virginia examples and explore the makers’ histories, as well as who else in each quilter’s household may have helped stitch.
